Course Summary:
Realising fantastic design ideas in the real world is what Design at Brunel is all about. Design involves understanding humans and problems, innovation and communication. It's about understanding language, whether that language is mechanical engineering, graphic design or human behaviour. What you want to communicate, and who you want to communicate with, will determine the language you will use. As a contemporary design professional, you'll take your place alongside all the other professionals involved in creating a product or service. You'll need to understand the skills and expertise each brings, drawing them together as you create your design solutions. The courses share some elements but differ in their focus. During your time with us, you'll build up a comprehensive design portfolio showing the development of your thinking via research, analysis, concept generation, development, testing, evaluation and final design solutions. In Years 2 and 3 you are free to determine your own projects, using the knowledge you have acquired to develop your own design philosophies and distinctive style of presentation. Our Design degrees are among the most respected in Europe and our students and graduates win national and international design awards. Whichever degree you choose, you'll share courses with other Design students in the first year. This will give you a sound grounding in technological and creative subjects before you move on to more specialised areas. Our Product Design and Product Design Engineering degrees also share all modules in Year 2 and you'll cover subjects from the creative to the socioeconomic and the technical. You can then focus on technical innovation, or a mix of functional, creative and humanistic design. You'll also undertake a major specialised project. This can be based on personal experience or the result of collaboration with a business or charity. This course bridges the worlds of design and engineering, producing true hybrid professionals ready for employment as design engineers and product development specialists. You'll develop your knowledge of dealing with the fundamental principles of product design, engineering and manufacture. The Computer-based Design Methods module in Level 3 is unique to this course. You'll become familiar with Computer Aided Design, Engineering and Manufacturing software, applying these methods and tools to design practice. To help you prepare for the world of work, we'll encourage you to take the sandwich course option, incorporating an industry placement year. A placement can be the start of a strong relationship between you and your host company. In Level 3, the Innovation Management module introduces you to management techniques, generic product analysis and business plan development. Our graduate designers are highly valued in the industry, working around the world for organisations where excellence in design is crucial to the brand, including Apple, Dyson Appliances and Virgin Atlantic.
Modules:

Great staff and a mixed, international crowd of students and staff. The union offers plenty of great opportunities to volunteer and join societies that really help you experience new things and meet new people. The campus is really tight so everyone gets on and you’ll make loads of friends. Uxbridge is alright, campus wise, with Liquid and the Union doing most of your nights out and London an hour away on the train if you fancy the big city to do some shopping or the like.

    Brunel is the perfect university for me. It's not party central, but being on the fringe of London has plenty of perks. Brunel Design is great.
